I would normally see this as a bright spot in ANOTHER crap season, but we have the same clowns picking players so even that is a downer. I would say tank the rest of the season for the #3-4 pick, but what would it matter. These clowns will screw it up.

And you KNOW what is going to happen right? Manzel comes out and is #1 and there will still be 2-3 NFL ready type QB's (unlike EJ who had no business being picked in the first) and Buffalo will bypass them because they have EJ.

And why not? isn't that how it normally goes for the Bills fans?

If we end up with a top 5 pick, we will trade down with a team needing a quarterback....stuipidity at its finest.

I would have no problem drafting a QB in round 1. If nothing else we can always trade him or EJ.

Johnny football, no matter what Hackett / Marone calls, he will find a way to make a play.  Kinda like a guy named Flutie.

If we draft in X spot, (X-1) absolute can't-miss players will come out for the draft.  

Bank it.

I'm so tired of justifying sucking for an entire football season to have a top 10 draft pick.    Been there, done that and we still suck.

The problem is that we don't suck enough to make it worthwhile.We never end with a top 3 pick always around 10 or so. we just suck at sucking.

At worst the "clowns" in the front office found a very good starting LB and WR in the last draft and may have found a decent deep threat as well.  That's IF EJ turns out to be a complete bust and no one else from the class contribute.  2 starters in one draft that I think could start for most NFL teams, there's a lot of reason to cut this front office some slack. I for one really look forward to see what kind of leap the team could take with another draft just like last year's.  Especially if EJ looks better down the stretch.

Whoa...I'll be the first to say that EJ stunk up the place on Sunday, but I'm not sold on him as a bust at all, and would wait until the end of the season.  Chances are if we are actually picking sixth he will have been a bust and we should go for one of the three or four nfl qb's coming out for this draft.  I'm hearing comparisons of this class to the 1983 class...so if its even CLOSE to that we might go qb.In reality we will be picking (I think) in the 10-15 slot...making EJ hard to give up on and we'll be looking to shore up an area of weakness. (cornerback?) or go for a stud offensive lineman.

^^ this.

If this team had any football common sense we would drop the last few games and finish with 3 wins and possibly pic 3-5. If so, we go QB period. This class is MUCH better than last years, but Scott is spot on. We will trade down and let someone else take a better QB than what we have.

We have clowns running this thing who's egos out weigh smart football decisions. Who gives a crap if the National media rips us for taking another QB?  If he gets us to the playoffs then superbowl the Media can suck it.

The hard part to stomach is the current staff will be too bullheaded to admit their mistake and pass on one of these QB's who, while aren't Manning type prospects, are still guys who very well could still turn around a franchise. What will hurt even further is, we have a good enough nucleus where one of these guys is all this team needs to turn it around, but it will all rot away while the management will stick with their guy no matter what. That is what takes the frustration to a whole other level...... :wallbash:

How do we know this?  

There is no written rule that states you CAN'T draft a QB in the 1st Round two years in a row.  At some point, an NFL franchise has to have the balls to buck the trend.  Why can't it be us (for once)?

Carolina drafted Cam Newton 1st overall after taking Jimmy Clausen in the 2nd Round only a year earlier.  The Redskins took RG3 2nd overall, then doubled up with Kirk Cousins in the 3rd Round.


In an era where Luck, RGIII, Wilson, Dalton, etc. are leading playoff teams as rookies, why are teams so STUBBORN to stick with a sinking ship for 2-4 years?  It's absolutely ridiculous.  

What's the worst thing that could happen?  You kill EJ's confidence?  Well, guess what.  If he can't handle competition for his spot, he was never going to be the guy anyway.  Don't want to waste another 1st round pick?  Well, your team isn't going anywhere without a top QB, so technically you are wasting all of your picks by waiting around for a lost cause.  And if by some miracle you end up with TWO good QBs, you can easily get a 1st round pick back (and probably more) by making a trade.

               Show me this good nucleus. Who kicked any Steelers a$$ at ANYthing yesterday?  Face it and quit buying into this drivel about being so improved. We still have the same problems ( soft up front on the lines, can't handle the blitz, midget WR's) that we have for years besides our QB issues. This team still needs 3 or 4 starters at key positions and to be a whole lot more physical. Anyone who thinks that a QB short of a Luck, manning, Or barday could turn this team around is delusional. Yesterday was so disappointing not due to a shaky EJM (which I expected) but that even in their current state, PIT still had their way with us physically and no QB on the roster could have covered up for that. Until this bunch proves they can push around a physical 3-4 blitzing team and impose their will on them, they're still the same Bills.

This is 2013.  Not every good NFL team is the "physical" type that pushes teams around on the line of scrimmage.  Indianapolis (with Peyton) was a powerhouse for years, and they were about as finesse as you get.

We do have a good nucleus on this team.  If EJ could complete ANYTHING yesterday, you might have seen some running lanes open for Fred and CJ.  And the defense played pretty well through 3 quarters, until it was clear the game was lost.

The missing piece has been (for 14 years) and continues to be - Quarterback.

If we go 6th we're guaranteed at least 1 of the following: Bridgewater, Mariota, Manziel, Clowney, Mike Evans, or Jake Matthews.
